The Year 9 basketball team made a dominant start to their RSSP league campaign with a convincing victory over Orleans Park. RPA's starting five of Joel, Arun, Anton, Dubin and Nabil made a strong start to the game. Their domination of the rebounding at both ends and accurate shooting from around the key enabled RPA to open up a massive 21-2 lead at half time.

Orleans came out for the third quarter with renewed vigour and defended their basket with much better intensity in the second half. Strong performances by Dylan, Yasin and Adam from the bench enabled RPA to keep the pressure on. RPA made full use of the bench in the fourth quarter and this disrupted their scoring rhythm slightly, but managed to close the game out for a thoroughly convincing victory.

Team - Joel, Arun, Anton, Dubin, Nabil, Adam, Hassan, Ozzie, Dylan, Yasin, Jake.
